1D and 2D digital waveguides are already established as important elements in physical modeling constructions. This paper describes a program which has been developed for sound experimentation using three dimensional digital waveguide structures. Arbitrary waveguide structures may be created and displayed in three dimensions. They may be rotated and viewed(More)
This paper introduces the Gong system, an Internet-based voice board system designed primarily for language learners which includes special support for Cantonese. The Gong system is a client/server design which may be used to complement or, in some contexts, to replace face to face learning.
